What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the ability to copy very large amounts of data and quickly have it uploaded to Azure. It is secure and there is no question about the loss of data. It is very easy to plug in and to get the process started.

How has it helped my organization?

The Azure Data Box saves us a great deal of time when migrating data to Azure. Not only does it save time but you have to think of the cost savings, in terms of time, as well.

What needs improvement?

I am not confident in this device's ability to perform a network backup in our data center.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

This is a pay-as-you-go solution, where you pay for the amount of storage space that you are using.

What other advice do I have?

Azure Data Box is something I would recommend for anyone who needs to migrate a large amount of data, for example from a data warehouse to the cloud. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
